Tiger Ox Painting's New Blog

One of the joys and frustrations of small business ownership is that while you get to do everything involved in running a business, you also get to do everything involved in running a business. I love painting; I don't even mind prepping; and demo is the best thing there is to be done. But I'm neither trained nor especially adept at marketing or accounting, even if I can take satisfaction in finally getting something done,and not making a total botch of it. This blog is one of those things that I've been meaning to “get done” for some time, but the demands of scheduling and estimating have always interfered. That, and I have to admit, a fair amount of nervousness about posing as an expert, despite the fact that I've been gainfully employed as a professional painter for nearly ten years now. When I considered how the format of this blog should work, I immediately thought of all the questions we ask and are asked on a regular basis. What kind of paint do you use? What's the right way to do this? Will this color work? Where is my painter's tool; I know I just saw it? The answers are: depends, depends, depends, and it'll be the last place you look. I don't think expertise is measured by how quickly one can come up with a glib answer, but how regularly and seriously you seek to expand your knowledge. Although this may undoubtedly change as we work out the kinks, we will begin with a series of questions about painting, repair, and old houses in general. These questions have been suggested by our recent projects, and constitute a snapshot of the conversations we enact from day to day about the work that we perform. Now we can add to that performance a little written word. Bear with us. As always, we are a work in progress.
